« Part 12: Moving the table saw, and sticking the bench top tools to the wall... Part 13 of A journey into the workshop. series Part 14: Mail ordering shop projects... »

Simply put, I took sheathing grade ply, cut it into 18×24” panels, drilled holes and counterbores for mounting hardware for my bench top tools, and mounted that all up on Rubbermaid adjustable closet shelf hardware… The panels are sized so that I can simply clamp them down to my workbench and get to work, which is awfully handy since that is where the dust collector is plumbed near…

A simple stacking system made from closet hardware and plywood.

Now to dismount the old mounting boards from the tool stands, and get ready to throw them on Craigslist…

Oh and FWIW, the shelves are level, my garage door tracks lean toward the back…

OK, dbhost, and now the rest of story…......

You were in the process of doing this when you recommended it to me! With pictures, it looks even like a better idea. I am sure I will do something similar.

Thanks, and have a good day,
